About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To learn, from everyone and everything ♥

ABOUT ME

Restless
Open-minded
Brutally honest
Fun
Silly
Quite analytical
Easy going
Lover of music, literature, language, everything that's a form of expression and that allows for play

I like going out and painting the town red as much as staying in to play Texas hold 'em while drinking a good whisky.

PHILOSOPHY

Even from the most hideous situation or that peson that gets on your nerves there's something to be learnt.

Refuse to fall down
If you cannot refuse to fall down,
refuse to stay down.
If you cannot refuse to stay down,
lift your heart toward heaven,
and like a hungry beggar,
ask that it be filled.
You may be pushed down.
You may be kept from rising.
But no one can keep you from lifting your heart
toward heaven
only you.
It is in the middle of misery
that so much becomes clear.
The one who says nothing good
came of this,
is not yet listening.

♥ Clarissa Pinkola

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Whenever I can I show people around here and help them with advice, guiding them.
Something funny I've observed is that those who have the least are the ones that share the most, I try to share whatever it is I have, my time, a bottle of tequila, tickets to this or that event.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've stayed with CSers and viceversa
I've shown people around my city and viceversa as well

Interests

Family (friends are included here)
Reading, writing, a trip on its own!
Swimming, ever noticed how salt water heals wounds and under water all you can hear is your own thinking?
Dancing, watching good films, Photography
Music, music, music!
